  • An interesting place to visit. Self guided tour possible but tour guides are full of knowledge. Good for history buff. Also free coffee at the end.
  • Those owls are amazing. I work next to them every day and yet I still shout in joy whenever I see them
  • A fascinating place to visit to get an insight into Edinburgh's residential past. An easy place to miss though amongst all the other attractions on the Royal Mile.
  • I love it great place
  • I really, really enjoyed my visit to Gladstone's Land. I wasn't sure what to expect - although I'm a National Trust geek, I've not been to many smaller properties. This one is definitely a gem. You enter into a small ticket booth before plunging straight back into old Edinburgh - a fabric merchant's shop, complete with wares. Maps and drawings of Edinburgh at the time fill the corridors as you explore, and rooms are decorated in period, helping to give an impression of life in the city 400 years ago. The volunteer guides were wonderful, telling us titbits of information (we went during the week just outside of tourist season, when it was quieter and they had more time) and explaining how the Royal Mile has changed over the years. If you want a flavour of the city's history, I'd highly recommend it - particularly followed by a visit to the New Town property on Charlotte Square. It really puts the differences in the architecture into perspective, and despite having lived in the city a long time, I still learnt a lot.
